AT&T Inc has won approval from the European Commission for its planned $85.4-billion acquisition of Time Warner Inc, the No. 2 US wireless carrier said on Wednesday.

The merger, which still requires approval from the US Department of Justice, is expected to close by the end of the year, AT&T said.

During his election campaign, US President Donald Trump had said that he opposes the merger, and in January a transition official told Reuters that Mr Trump was still against the deal.
